One of Chicago’s most eclectic intersections will be the site for the unofficial start of summer’s outdoor festival season on Friday- Sunday, May 24-26. Chicago’s summer festival season unofficially kicks off with the 39th annual Belmont-Sheffield Music Festival. Presented by the Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce, this event is considered to be one of the city’s premier music fests.

The festival reflects the lifestyle of this area, featuring some of the best free musical entertainment in Chicago, it attracts Millennials, early Generation Z’s and weekend hipsters from all over Chicagoland. In addition to music, it also features an exciting mix of fine arts, crafts, fashions and a variety of food and drink.
